Christmas Feast

For Christmas Day I joined my boyfriend and his family for a traditional feast in the Ballard area. He has a large family and so I met many cousins and uncles.

It was a fun mix of Phillipino food and other fixins including a really great salad.

I enjoyed this gathering and couldn't help but think back on last year's Christmas. I went out to eat with my good friend in S. Korea and then went home. When thinking about this I realised that this year's Christmas was the one I wanted for so long, spent with a family and enjoying the season. For too long Christmas in Korea was really about couples and showing off commercialism at the local department stores. Sure the commercialism part happens here, but I actually didn't mind it this year.

Anyways hope everyone had a nice Christmas it's on to New Year's!
